I'm upgrading my debian squeeze install by
Code:
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
and have some questions. Is that the preferred way, or should I be doing something else?

On the latest dist-upgrade some issues arose, and apt gave these messages:
Quote
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
   LANGUAGE = (unset),
   LC_ALL = (unset),
   LANG = "en_US.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
/usr/bin/mandb: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct

and...

The boot loader configuration for this system was not recognized. These settings in the configuration may need to be updated:                               
 │                                                                         
 │  * The root device ID passed as a kernel parameter;                         
 │  * The boot device ID used to install and update the boot loader.         
 │                                                                         
 │                                                                           
 │ You should generally identify these devices by UUID or label. However, on MIPS   
 │ systems the root device must be identified by name.     

and...

insserv: Script twonky is broken: incomplete LSB comment.
insserv: missing `Required-Stop:'  entry: please add even if empty.
insserv: Script twonky is broken: incomplete LSB comment.
insserv: missing `Required-Stop:'  entry: please add even if empty.

The system was able to reboot OK, so can I disregard the note about bootloader config?
I did not understand the perl warning about locale settings (or the lack of them), is that a problem?
Finally, I'm aware that insserv is the new method of initiating services on boot, but I don't know how to alter my twonky init script to make insserv happy. What to do there?

thx
